Last Man Standing season 7 revival may happen at Fox

Shortly after ABC canceled the series previous year, critics questioned whether the show got the ax because of Allen's political views.

Allen, 64, added more fuel to the fire by tweeting, "They heard all your voices people!"

According to a report from Deadline, Tim Allen has already signed a deal to come back aboard the comedy series for another season and there are active negotiations with numerous other cast members to come back for more, as well.

Allen's tweet may be premature, as a source close to production told Fox News rumors of the show's return are highly "speculative". Tim Allen, who plays Mike Baxter, the conservative dad and husband, posted on his Twitter account Thursday how the show being renewed "just might be a reality".

"That was the most risky thing, because he's mitigated on the show by a family of all women that had different opinions, but the guy was a likable guy and really a principled guy just about work, and ethics, and all this stuff". "Keep it up. Who wants more #LastManStanding?". This unusual scrapping led viewers to wonder if its cancellation had to do with it starring right-leaning Tim Allen and his conservative character Mike Baxter. Fox and 20th Century Fox Television declined comment. The cancellation inspired a viral Change.org petition, which has collected more than 430,000 signatures.

"There's nothing more risky to me, especially in this climate, than a amusing, likable conservative", Allen told the "Norm Macdonald Live" podcast.

ABC's entertainment president, Channing Dungey, denied allegations that the show was canceled for those reasons.

Allen and his fans believed the cancellation was due, in part, to the show promoting a "likeable conservative character".

It was in May of 2016 that ABC made a decision to ax The Last Standing. Once Upon a Time was never able to draw almost as many viewers as its time slot predecessor and will end after seven seasons.
